Raw Cinnamon Donut Holes This is one of those recipes that I've been saying I'm going to try out forever, but was, for some reason, intimidated. I researched a number of recipes online, decided what flavor combination I wanted, gathered the ingredients, and then never made them!

Then, the other morning, with the Verizon guy here, Richie still palling around the apartment, Bar pulling at my pant leg, I decided it would be a good time to try. And they turned out AWESOME! They were actually super quick and easy to make (though a bit messy). No bake! No dehydrate! Just refrigerate! These will definitely be on the menu more regularly and I'll experiment soon with other flavor options (I'm thinking a chocolate nutbutter option...!).

Here's how I did it:

Line a sheet pan with parchment or wax paper.

In a bowl combine and whisk:

-1c amaranth (or other nutty/neutral flour...I had some raw amaranth flour around so I grabbed that)

-1c oat flour (you can also grind oats in a food processor if you don't have flour on hand)

-3/4c coconut flour

-1/2tsp sea salt

Add:

-1tbsp vanilla

-5tbsp raw agave

-1/3c room temp coconut oil

And mix until it forms a dough then set aside.

In a food processor (I use my Nutribullet) process until fine:

1/2c coconut nectar/sugar

2tbsp cinnamon

Put the cinnamon sugar into a small bowl.

Take about 2 tablespoons of dough in your hand and roll into a ball.

Place the ball into the cinnamon sugar bowl and roll it around until it is totally covered.

Place it on the sheet pan and start over.

Should make 15 balls.

Refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

ENJOY!!!

Obsessed: Navitas Naturals Power Snacks

Love Life and Lollipops- Navitas Naturals Raw Cacao Gogi Super Food Power Snack

These vegan, raw, superfood snacks are absolutely fabulous! Last time we were at my all time favorite health food market/cafe out at the beach (Provisions), I grabbed a few new things to try out.  One of them was a bag of raw, superfood snacks made from gogi berries and cacao among other things.

I have to say, I wasn't expecting much as often at times these moments of: ooooh I need to try that end up as a major disappointment.  Generally speaking I've wasted a good $10 on something I've convinced myself I need to have and love and then can't bring myself to take more than a couple bites.

This was surely not the case with the Navitas Naturals Raw Cacao Gogi Super Food Power Snack!!! I'm obsessed.  It's not only delicious, but it honestly gives me a real burst of energy and gets me through to my next meal when I'm hungry and am trying not to binge or grab-on-the-go.  I keep a pouch in my bag to handle those hunger pangs I unavoidably get because of nursing.  It curbs that sweet thing I need to settle!

Oh and it's also superfabulous for pre or post work out!

Try it! And love it;)
